This weekend, I fell headlong into temptation.
That got your attention, didn't it? One thing I've learned is that the road to JoAnn's is paved with good intentions---along with the road to Fabric.com, A Scarlet Thread, Connecting Threads, Marti's Fabric Studio . . . well, you get the picture. I had this really great resolution---I would finish quilting the Double Irish Chain and at least get the queen size whole cloth quilt well under way, and then I would baste and start quilting the (queen size) Double Wedding Ring before I bought any more fabric or started another quilt.
I am safer around chocolate and cheesecake--or even chocolate cheesecake--than I am around fabric.
So this is my true confession--I had been looking at fabric for several days, trying to decide on the best way to approach making a Tetris quilt when it came time to start it. Then I would look at batting (for the DWR) that I'm not going to start quilting for a while. Then I would pull out That Perfect Stitch and read the reviews of battings, then get my little packet of Quilter's Dream samples.....then I would look at fabric some more.
Until I walked into JoAnn's.....it was just a few 1/4 yards....so I would have all the shades for the Tetris quilt....which I would not start.....
Until today.... . . .
